Welcome to a new year at Beachcomber and welcome to the new families that have joined us. Last year children planted tomatoes and other vegetables in the garden. We planted several different varieties of tomato, including cherry red, purple heritage and yellow. Children were excited and surprised to see the results of the harvest. We looked at and compared the different kinds and sizes of tomatoes. And we all did a taste test, yum! Seeds have been kept for future planting. We look forward to seeing beans and corn ripening and ready to taste.
